Our approach to research
EGAP members conduct research designed to assess the causal impact of governance innovations. Researchers use a variety of methods including randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and natural experiments to justify causal claims. Many members complement these research designs with qualitative, descriptive, and other observational methods.
